We  use a standard form of licence to occupy for all  Methodist Churches (the Standard Licence ). The Standard Licence ensures the use of the  premises by third party regular part-time users is reflects Methodist best practice and the Constitution and Discipline of the Methodist Church (CPD). 

It safeguards Managing Trustees, and user groups, and follows Methodist law, policy and best practice.
